    Cookie Brownie Candy Bar

      Is it a cookie?  A brownie?  A candy bar?  Well, sort of, if you consider a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup a candy bar.  For the sake of naming the treat, I’m going to consider it such…a Cookie Brownie Candy Bar! I would definitely call this a fully loaded piece of pure delight!   Three treats in one.  I tried, but I couldn’t figure out something cute to call it, so Cookie Brownie Candy Bar will just have to do!   It follows along with one of those new-fangled “hidden” treats inside a treat, and I am especially fond of anything with brownies involved!  Recently, I’ve made the Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes and the Oreo Stuffed Brownie  – those are both delicious!   But that’s one of the hazards of blogging…on to something different. When wandering around the web, I saw where someone had pressed chocolate chip cookie dough in the bottom of a brownie tin, placed a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, top side down, onto the dough and then added brownie batter over the top.  I meant to pin the idea, but I got distracted and then I couldn’t find it.  Don’t you hate it when you do that?  I remembered that it used 1 1/2 pre-cut cookie squares, but I wasn’t sure about the temperature and how long to bake them…blah!  Time for testing!  So here’s the skinny on the not so skinny, but easy to make treat.

    Oreo Stuffed Brownies

    Yet another Pinterest inspired recipe…I am determined to try things out right away and expand my recipe collection, or toss the idea away.  Some people can snap a picture of something that looks really yummy, but the final  taste doesn’t meet my expectations.  A couple of weeks ago, I found a delicious looking cupcake using Mint Oreos: Oreos in the middle, in the frosting and on top.  I didn’t have the Mint Oreos, but I used regular Oreos and made them for our family Easter party, and they were delicious.  I had a little trouble with the frosting…all those crunched cookies had trouble going through the tip, and the pastry bag was already full, I needed to get out the door and on the road, blah, blah, blah…so they weren’t as pretty as I wanted them to be…you can see them here.  Anyway, I was going to make the cupcakes again for the boy’s party tonight, but then I decided to try something a little different – Oreo Stuffed Brownies – and they turned out delicious! I didn’t take a lot of pictures, but here’s what I did and it was really easy.  For these brownies, I used two packages from a big box of Ghirardelli Brownie mix that I got from Costco, and prepared the mix according to the directions on the box.  Spray the bottom of the pan with non-stick spray,
